Moses Wetang’ula Dismisses Rumours He Met Raila Odinga Over Coalition Talks

Rumours have been circulating on social media that Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetang’ula was on his way to joining the Azimio La Umoja coalition headed by Raila Odinga.

The word on the street was that Wetang’ula, also the Bungoma senator, had privately held a meeting Raila over the possibility of forming a coalition.

This would have seen the lawmaker ditch the Kenya Kwanza Alliance, where he is a co-principal together with Deputy President William Ruto and ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi.

However, taking to Twitter, the veteran politician dispelled the rumours saying Kenya Kwanza was the valid dream and hope for Kenya.

“Have had a busy moment at Ford Kenya party HQS receiving, advising and encouraging our candidates in preparation for party primaries. Kenya kwanza is the valid dream and hope for Kenya,” said Wetang’ula.

The Ford Kenya leader further clarified on the viral photo that claimed was he and Raila in the purported secret meeting saying it was taken in 2018.

The Wetang’ula-Raila pact rumours were sparked by Kieni MP Kanini Kega’s hint of a possible ‘earthquake’ within the Azimio camp today, Friday, March 25, which is hours to the deadline on party hoping.

Registrar of Political Parties Anne Nderitu set Saturday, March 26, 2022, as the deadline for parties to submit their membership list. 

Prospects of Wetang’ula joining Raila comes a few days after Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka disclosed he was trying to lure him to join their camp.
